This generous album (nearly 75 minutes long) contains 14 selections from the award-winning trio's other CDs. Thus, the range of music is quite wide. The artists (Erika Nickrenz–piano, Adela Pena-violin, & Sara Sant'Ambrogio–cello), though accomplished soloists, meld their playing beautifully. Most of the pieces are very lively–not too relaxing or useful for meditation–but great for listening.
